Slovenia's successful presentation at the film location market in London
As we have already reported, one of the largest internationally renowned markets for the promotion of film locations, FOCUS 2019, is taking place in London on 3 and 4 December. The Slovenian Film Centre, which carries out the activities of a Film Commission in Slovenia and thus also provides support for foreign film productions shot there, will attend this event in order to present the Slovenian film locations for the second time.
The visitors of the Slovenian stand agree that the Slovenian film locations have a strong potential to attract foreign producers. The 25-percent cash rebate measure, which represents an additional incentive to film in Slovenia, has garnered much interest as well. The stand was also visited by representatives of the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in London.
The promotion of the Slovenian film locations will once again take place in cooperation with the Slovenian Tourist Board. The purpose of this sort of promotional events is to promote Slovenia as a film destination. Because of its idyllic and picturesque appearance, Slovenia has a wide range of film locations to offer. All the well-preserved historical sites, the number of scenic locations in the immediate vicinity, and the fact that it is possible to shoot in the mountains, by the sea, in Karst caves or in the Pannonian Plain in a single day belong among the key factors that qualify Slovenia as one of the most exclusive film locations.
The slogan of this year’s promotional campaign is: “Slovenia. Any European story. Within two hours. Drive less. Film more. Film in Slovenia.”
The Slovenian Film Centre is also a member of the EUFCN - European Film Commissions Network, which aims to make use of these sorts of events to continuously encourage the long-term economic effects of international collaborations in the field of film making and promotion.
